Bhavni Fowler Endometriosis Portrait

Bhavni Fowler

Age: 42

Time to diagnosis: 9 years

Bhavni has been through a lot, physically and emotionally. But she’s bravely and honestly found out who she is and what she needs. Now, with inspiring openness and kindness, she’s a support worker, helping others to cope with endometriosis.

 

Despite enduring many treatments, including the removal of a kidney, Bhavni often kept quiet; she didn’t want to worry family or to sound as if she was complaining. It made for a very lonely decade. But over time, Bhavni realised the difference it made to be open and to speak up for what was right for her.
